VISA vs visa.

I'm curious why people often write VISA when they mean visa. A visa is a permit to enter a country while VISA is a credit card company. Maybe people think VISA is some sort of acronym? Anyone have any ideas?

Re: VISA vs visa.

You don't need a visa if you're a very important South African.

I imagine this VIP South African has a VISA to pay for his very expensive watch.
